Colchester Zoo

As you walk around the zoo there’s plenty of play areas to try out including the indoor soft play area Jungle Tumble so the kids can release their wild side! Learn more about the animals and see them up close by watching an array of displays. You even get the fantastic opportunity to feed the elephants and giraffes yourself and take a ride on the ‘Lost Madagascar Express’ road train!

More recent developments include changes to our existing chimpanzee exhibit with other additional areas also being added such as Colchester Zoo’s 'Butterfly Glade', a walkthrough enclosure of free flying butterflies. Other areas include ‘Bears of the Rising Sun’, a state of the art enclosure which houses two beautiful sun bears and ‘Australian Rainbows’; A tropical walkthrough which houses a large group of lorikeets offering visitors a chance to feed them a tasty treat of nectar!

And don't forget to pop into the ‘Sensation Station’ and have a go at handling some furry friends and scaly species before visiting the discovery centre and getting your face painted like your favourite animal!

Colchester Zoo also offers a full calendar of events throughout the year including their Summer holiday events, annual spook-tacular Shriek Week in October half term and the zoo’s Magic of Christmas events on selected dates throughout December. All of which are packed full of fantastic events for all the family!
